Classification of Normal vs Malignant Cells in B-ALL White Blood Cancer Microscopic Images:ISBI 2019

Now – April 11, 2019 // Host by ISBI 2019 & Grand Challenges & CodaLab // Prize: NaN

Note: Computer assisted tools can provide cost effective and easily deployable solutions for cancer diagnostics. The aim of this challenge is to build a classifier for the identification of leukemic versus normal immature cells for while blood cancer, namely, B-ALL diagnostics. A dataset of cells with class labels, marked by the expert based on the domain knowledge, will be provided at the subject-level to train the classifier. This problem is interesting because the two cell types appear similar under the microscope and subject-level variability plays a key role. Hence, it is challenging to build a classifier that can yield good results on prospective data.

CHAOS – Combined (CT-MR) Healthy Abdominal Organ Segmentation

Now – April 11, 2019 // Host by Grand Challenges & ISBI 2019 // Prize: NaN

Note: In this challenge, you segment the liver in CT data, and segment liver, spleen, and kidneys in MRI data.

Chinese Artificial Intelligence and Multimedia Information Recognition Competition

March 20, 2019 – July 2019 // Host by Xiamen Municipal People’s Government // Prize: NaN

NoteIn order to promote and lead the innovation and development in the field of artificial intelligence, Xiamen Municipal Government, under the guidance of the Central Network Information Office, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Public Security, organized the Competition of Chinese Artificial Intelligence and Multimedia Information Recognition Technology. The first large-scale national competition in the field of artificial intelligence.
Contents of the competition: There are three categories of images, audio and video, and 15 contest items, including homologous image retrieval, similar image retrieval, handwritten text optical character recognition (OCR), printed text optical character recognition (OCR), face recognition, specific object recognition, landmark recognition, flag recognition, logo recognition, voiceprint recognition and language and facial features. Key word recognition, variant homologous audio retrieval, variant homologous video retrieval, group behavior recognition and specific behavior recognition. The competition project covers the mainstream application direction in the field of artificial intelligence multimedia information recognition.

IJCAI-19 Alibaba Artificial Intelligence Confrontation Algorithms Competition

March 4-June 10, 2019//Host by Tianchi//Prize: USD 10,000

NoteIJCAI-19 Alibaba Artificial Intelligence Confrontation Algorithms Competition aims at exploring the security of AI models. This competition is mainly aimed at image classification tasks, including model attack and model defense. Competitors can not only act as attackers, but also act as defenders, by constructing a more robust model, to accurately identify the countermeasure samples by slightly perturbing the pictures to generate countermeasure samples.
